Chirinos Traded To Rangers

The Rays traded C Robinson Chirinos to the Rangers today in another deal for a player to be named or cash.

Chirinos was designated for assignment April 1, along with C Stephen Vogt, as the Rays had to create two spots on the 40-man roster.

Chirinos was acquired in the January 2011 deal that sent Matt Garza to the Cubs. Chrinos made his major-league debut that season, then missed all of last year after sustaining a concussion in spring training.
